Providence, RI Streets Coalition Hopes to Remake Transit

The coalition, which generally promotes safe streets, has begun advertising across media and on billboards to promote improvements to the city’s neighborhoods outlined by the Great Streets plan initiated by the administration of Mayor Jorge Elorza and adopted by the Providence City Council. That initiative proposes an Urban Trail Network with off-road separated paths, separated on-road trails, low-stress neighborhood greenways, and other improvements designed to make Providence more livable and revitalize and connect its neighborhoods with a safe transportation system that serves everyone.
